Following the tradition established by the Buddha, every two weeks Buddhist monks assemble to recite the monastic code and deal with any breaches of discipline; it’s essentially a time for sharing and discussion. In family life, we also need to know how to communicate and care for one another. Also, the way we care for adult relatives is not the same as the way we care for our children or friends. In addition, to properly care for someone, we have to understand his problems and point of view.
